As an Indian-American, Kriti Sarav struggled to embrace her identity. Her podcast, My Very Own Bully, tells the story of what it was like growing up between two cultures. In a tiny closet in her room, Sarav recorded her story. After years of feeling different and like she didn’t fit the mold, Sarav realized her biggest critic was herself. She wrote her story as a way of taking back her narrative. Her podcast won the high school grand prize for NPR’s Student Podcast Challenge. It was the unanimous choice for the judges.
